Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

When Lincoln Bowe, a controversial Republican ex-senator, disappears at the start of this fast-paced thriller from bestseller Sandford (Broken Prey), the White House puts Jacob Winter, a veteran political operative with "an uncanny ability to navigate the world of bureaucracy," on the case. Bowe vanished shortly after making a fiery speech denouncing a rival, Arlo Goodman, the governor of Virginia and a demagogue who heads a volunteer militia group known as the Watchmen. When Bowe's burnt and headless corpse turns up, Winter is under even more pressure to discover those behind his murder. Aided by the dead man's attractive and possibly duplicitous widow, Madison, the fixer follows a trail of corpses and deception that suggests the killing may have been a staged piece of theater intended to derail Goodman's ascent to the presidency. Readers interested in a quick diverting romp without much gravitas will enjoy this, but serious Beltway fiction junkies might prefer their political thrillers to be a little more plausible. 500,000 announced first printing.

From Booklist

Former Virginia senator Lincoln Bowe is missing. His wife, Madison, believes his bitter political rival, Governor Arlo Goodman, is behind it. Critics scoff until she reveals a security tape showing two men loosely affiliated with Goodman threatening her in her home. Bowe's disappearance is a political time bomb. The presidential conventions are just over the horizon, and both parties fear the consequences if it detonates. The president, through his chief of staff, hires Jake Winter to investigate. Bowe's body is found soon after Winter initiates his investigation. Bowe was not a saint: his sexual dalliances, with both men and women, were numerous, and his obsession with destroying Goodman's political career may have driven him to contemplate political blackmail. Winter has plenty of suspects to choose from, and he knows the answer can be found somewhere in Washington's backrooms, where third-string campaign dirty tricksters change allegiances like other people change socks. Sandford, the best-selling author of the Prey series, displays an insider's knowledge of political infighting and couples it with his skill at creating memorable characters working through the maze of a diabolical plot. (Readers of a certain age will be reminded of Ross Thomas, grand master of the D.C. thriller from an earlier era.) The real Washington is awash with its own scandals and political time bombs, so expect readers to flock to this funhouse-mirror reflection of the real thing. Wes Lukowsky

In my opinion John Sandford is one of the great mystery writers of the day. This book I found while browsing Amazon and thought I'd give it a try,cause most of his books are very readable. I wasn't disappointed with my selection. I recommend this book to all Sandford fans. Money well spent.

I have long enjoyed Sandford's Prey series as well as the Kidd novels published under his real name John Camp. This one featuring political fixer Jake Winter is quite a departure from the Prey novels and takes us deep into political intrigue and criminal behavior in the U.S. political milieu. It was interesting to obeserve Sandford weave his magic in this political suspense thriller milieu.

I enjoyed "Dead WatcH'. It's fast-paced with many plot twists, an intiguing heroine in Madison Bowe. Jake Winter has some of the traits of Lucas Davenport but the settings are quite different. I hope this is not just a one-off and that Sandford gives us another Jake Winter novel to enjoy as well as many more featuring Lucas Davenport.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I had difficulty with this political intrigue and trying to keep the characters straight. I found the story somewhat boring and never ending. Terribly far fetched and lacking in suspense it didn't keep me intrigued. I share with others saying this book lacks the complexities and personalities of the Prey series. Not one of Sanford best.

I found it was inadequate compared to the Davenport, Flowers. and Kidd books, all of which I reread many times.
